Works on Paper at Circa 1907 Gallery, Cairns, 22 May to 09 June 2012
by Laurel McKenzie
An exhibition of ‘Works on Paper’ will be presented at Circa 1907 Gallery, from Tuesday May 22 to Saturday June 09. The exhibition opening will be held 6 to 7pm on Friday May 25.
Circa 1907 Gallery is located adjacent to the outdoor stage in City Place, Cairns CBD, open from 10AM - 4PM Tuesday to Saturday.
The Works on Paper exhibition is a showcase for contemporary printmaking by a group of professional Far North Queensland artists.
It is the 2nd members exhibition presented by Inkmasters Cairns Inc, a not-for-profit organisation that supports artists by providing exhibition and other opportunities.
Inkmasters also seeks to raise the profile of the artform by encouraging greater community awareness of and appreciation for the beauty and intricacies of both traditional and new print media.
The specialized skills of etching and aquatint, lino and vinyl-cut relief printing, screenprinting, collography, digital imaging, lithography and 3D printed installations are represented in the works by the 20 artists in this show.
The works are diverse in content and style as well as print media, but they are all, as the title says, works on paper, and they have another thing in common: they are no larger than 28 x 38cm in paper size.
Curator, Jan Daly, invited Inkmasters members to push the boundaries of innovative printmaking practice, and this is what they have done.
All works are available for sale, unframed, and people interested in building a collection of original works of art by highly acclaimed as well as emerging artists will find prices are very affordable.
The exhibition is generously supported by Cairns Regional Council.
